AudiSRS INSURANCE scheme with CHRIS KNOTT :: 0800 917 2274

Hi to all!

Call: 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 & quote 'ASR993 - AudiSRS.com'!


I would just like to introduce myself & our company following our new affiliation to this forum with our specialised car insurance scheme.

Chris Knott Insurance - http://www.chrisknott.co.uk - have been involved with car clubs for over 20 years so hopefully we'll understand your needs & requirements!

The scheme starts for ages 22 and over (25 and over for RS models) for Comprehensive cover, & 19 and over (25 and over for RS models) for TPF&T cover, and you must have at least 1 year's NCB (unless you have NCB on a second car or a company car letter to state at least 1 year's claim free driving). Maximum car value is £30,000.

All drivers must have held a full UK licence for at least 1 year, and to insure a 'performance' car, there must be at least 1 years experience of driving that, or similar performance cars. Unfortunately, the scheme is not competitive on all M - Manchester, L - Liverpool, OL - Oldham & SK1-12 - Stockport postcodes and excludes Northern Ireland.

We consistently have a very high renewal retention rate meaning that people renew with us because of our constantly competitive insurance premiums & experienced, reliable customer service. That is why we can promote this insurance scheme knowing that we are in it for the long term.

I'll view the site regularly and try to answer any queries that you have also.

In the meantime, please feel free to call the New Business Team when you receive your renewal through. A dedicated team, with years of experience, is waiting for your call!
(I personally don't do the quotes).


0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 & please don't forget to quote 'ASR993 - AudiSRS.com'!

Hi
As with most people, we have been affected by the snow but most of our staff are in now though it took some time. We are due more snow in our location in the next few days but as half our staff are fairly local anyway, this shouldn't be a problem.

I'll let you know however if there are any significant changes re staffing!

UPDATE - JUST BEEN TOLD WE ARE SHUTTING AT 3.30PM TODAY - WEDNESDAY 6TH JANUARY!

Lol!
ChrisKnottIns

Thanks to all who have rung us for a quote.

We have just calculated the figures for 2009 and they show that the average recorded saving we made for our new customers last year was 12.5% off their BEST quote so it's certainly worth a call!

We consistently average over 80% renewal retention as well (December was 84%!) so people are happy at renewal as well!

0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 until 1/3/10 then 01424 200477.

Sorry no.
Graham

Chris Knott are in the lead so far in terms of lowest price, well done guys.
mikey-s

Such a shame they don't cover the 'posh' part of Liverpool.
Graham

I decided to go with Chris Knott when my policy expired in February and my then existing insurer had lost the edge on competitivness. They had a policy that met all my requirements and at a good price. It's also worth noting they gave me a good price initially without knowing what they were trying to beat or the ball park I was looking for.

I thought it might be worth sharing, that today I called to give notice of a new modification I will be doing soon (rear brake upgrade) and there was no fuss about covering this and no hidden charges. I had discussed how declaration and cover of further small modifications like this would be handled at the point of taking out the policy and I was pleased that this was honoured without fuss. The sort of thing you don't know until you go to do it.  
ChrisKnottIns

Please note that we have moved to modern premises in Hastings, East Sussex, specifically designed around the current and future needs of the business and considering the fact that we have taken on quite a few more staff.

The new postal details for Chris Knott Insurance will be:

Our quote line number won’t change – you can still call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 for your no-obligation quote – remember to quote your unique club/forum code (mobiles can call 01424 200477).



As well as new premises, we have recently invested heavily in technology that will reduce the amount of paper we use and store. The overall aim of these improvements is to enhance operations and therefore offer members an even better service.
ChrisKnottIns

Hi

Although on average nearly 1 in every 2 people who get a quote from us take out a policy, the number of people who ring us is quite low compared to the amount of registered users.

I realise that there are certain age and postcode limitations as stated in my original post in this thread (which are there to protect the scheme for the majority due to the high claims loss ratio's within these categories) but I would encourage you to give us a call if your car (or home, breakdown) insurance is due.

Our reputation hopefully precedes us based on the amount of grateful comments received.

Please ring free on 0800 917 2274 (mobiles can ring 01424 200477) and just state the club reference number found in my signature below, or in my original post.

Hi, firstly is the special offer still open to srs users?

RM is fine. It's only L, M, OL & SK1-12 postcodes that are affected.

Probably 25 for an S4. Sorry.
ChrisKnottIns

I’ve been asked quite a few times recently how to get an insurance quote from us.

All you need to do is either ring the office please on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 if calling from a mobile) – Mon-Fri 9am till 5pm, Sat 9am till noon and state the club name and if possible the reference number (found in my signature below) - or use the email quote facility found on this forum.

I don’t personally do the quotes as I spend a lot of my time travelling the country on business and work from home also.
We have a specialist team who will be able to help you.

Also, please don't forget the popular car breakdown cover at £54.50 for full UK cover – please see http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottBreakdown.pdf and the instant, online travel insurance quotes - http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/travel

And if you need home insurance then http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottHomeInsurance.pdf!

Thanks.
ChrisKnottIns

Just a quick apology for those who tried our New Business team on Monday but didn't get through.

We were absolutely manic - good for business - but it didn't help those who couldn't get a quote.
(Claims & Customer Service depts were unaffected).

We are back to normal now so please ring us if you're car/home/car breakdown insurance is due in July.
ChrisKnottIns

This insurance scheme is proving very popular which is great but I often get asked to do quotes myself.

Regarding this, could I ask you to either use the email quote facility found on this forum or ring the office please on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 if calling from a mobile – Mon-Fri 9am till 5pm, Sat 9am till noon.
It’s just that I don’t actually do the quotes, as I spend a lot of my time travelling the country on business and work from home also.
We have a specialist team who should be able to help you based on the details you’ve stated.

Also, please don't forget the car breakdown cover at £54.50 for full UK cover – please see http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottBreakdown.pdf, online travel insurance (instant quotes) -  http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/travel and home insurance.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, I've just been informed of this when I rang for a quote. This new rule may be due to the underwriters but must rule out the majority of cars owned by forum members.

20 bhp?  you get more than that just by laying your back seats down and using v power...

Have to agree. Pointless really. Stage 1 MRC remap blows the 20BHP rule.

You're wrong about that Peter. We receive a small commission for each car insured with Chris Knott and they add up! That income is important to us, as I'm sure it is to Chris Knott themselves as a site sponsor of AudiSRS.

I just thought I’d try and explain a little more about the insurer’s decision to amend the criteria for our insurance scheme. Please believe me when I say that we would love to insure everybody and I’ve enjoyed reading people’s feedback when they talk of our prices, customer service, claims handling, etc. However, the insurers have been hit hard this year and when trying to find out why, they have discovered that, in general, there are certain elements which are causing the problems. Hence the reason to only accept modifications with cosmetic changes and modded bhp increases of no more than 20bhp.

Also people must have at least 1 year's NCB – no introductory discounts are allowed, no more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction offence per driver and minimum premiums are £250 for Comprehensive & £200 for TPFT cover.

It seems that people outside of this criteria are losing money big-time for the insurers though of course this is a generalisation as they understand not everyone claims in these ‘areas’. It’s just that once bitten, twice shy.

May I reiterate that it’s not us who have made this decision but the insurers. Let me point you to this article which tends to sum up the market at the moment - http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/...sumer_Intelligence_Research_Finds
s4marsh

are we going to find the same problem with most other insurers when it come to renewal time in the near future?
ChrisKnottIns

From what i see and hear, this may be the case.
s4marsh

My sister has her mini cooper S insured with you and was going to get it re-mapped this month. Would this result in you being unable continue her policy?

We could refer it to the insurers considering she is a current customer.
s4marsh

ok thanks Tim
ChrisKnottIns

It’s fair to say premiums are increasing this year due to the increased cost of claims rather than the increased number of claims and these premium increases are imposed on us by the insurers.

Even though there is obviously negative reaction to this, our renewal retention rate has only dropped by 5% from 81% to 76% so it seems that approximately 3 out of every 4 people still renew with us.

I’m also hoping that after a period of time (such as 12 months or so), the criteria will be relaxed somewhat but we will see.
ChrisKnottIns

Hi

Again we see the media talking about the premium increases which seem to be affecting nearly everyone.
Here is the latest article from this weeks’ Daily Mail - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/a...le-digit-hikes-car-insurance.html

For years, our scheme insurers tended to avoid these increases when all around we were hearing of price jumps.

However, fortunately, we are still writing plenty of business even though these increases have been imposed nationally. I still see on forums that our insurance scheme is making savings for forum users (and some large – a £200 saving was quoted on one forum this week!

Therefore, I’d encourage you to call us for a quotation if your renewal is due within the next 21 days or so. You will also be able to take up our competitively priced full UK breakdown cover at £54.50. Please just ask my colleague when you ring for a quote.

The new criteria of not accepting any bhp increase mods by more than 20bhp does affect some on the forum but we are still busy though we’re sorry that this precludes some from getting a quote from us.

Please ring 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 and quote the club reference number found in my signature.

Hi there

Hi
My apologies for being away from the forums for so long. We have had a few internal changes.

March is a very busy month for insurance renewals so please feel free to ring us if your car insurance is due for renewal in the next few weeks.

In 2010, we recorded an average saving of 10.5% off our new customers quotes elsewhere and we have just had an extremely good first 2 months of the year – surpassing our target by quite a vast amount!

In fact, we were already two thirds to our February target a quarter of the way through the month!

It is great to see people ringing us up but we would like every possible person who fits the criteria to at least ring us on the freephone number and hopefully see the benefits that so many other people are seeing.

Please phone on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 for mobiles and don’t forget to quote the club reference number found in my signature below.

Also, please can you give me your feedback regarding the quote on here as we see so little feedback compared to the number of people who ring us for a quote!
The figures show a good number of people ringing but only a handful ever post!
ChrisKnottIns

Hi

Whilst the insurance market seems to have hardened over the last 12 months or so, we have always worked hard on our customer service and it’s nice to see comments on the forums of people being satisfied with our efforts. We endeavour to assist customers to our utmost and trust this is a major reason why people renew with us year after year.

Bearing this in mind, please feel free to contact us for a quotation on your car (and home!) insurance when they are due. We would be more than happy to quote for you.
ChrisKnottIns

The next edition of our interactive online magazine is due out this month. We already have a lot of subscribers but if you aren’t and you’d like to be added to the list, please send an email to magazine@chrisknott.co.uk with the word SUBSCRIBE in the subject field.

Just got off the phone with Chris Knott Insurance - seems they (or rather their underwriter Highway) can't cover cars with more than a 50bhp increase. They said they do take each case on it's own merit and try to persuade the underwriters to take it on but sadly it was a no go for me today
ChrisKnottIns

The good news is that we can now cover 100bhp over stock!
ChrisKnottIns

Calling us for a quote if your renewal is due

I'm often asked questions like "How much is it for a 23 yr old on a...?" or "I've been quoted £xxx. Can you beat it?".

As you can appreciate there's a lot more detail required before we can offer a quote. So the best thing is to call us on the Chris Knott freephone number (0800 917 2274) rather than PM-ing me or posting the question on the forum.

I know you're after a quick answer but there really isn't one for these types of question. If you call us our guys will make sure you have all the info you need to make a decision about switching to us.

Thanks.

Oh, and make sure you quote the forum's unique code to make sure you receive the full benefit
ChrisKnottIns

This month in particular has seen a great response from forum members to our flexible pricing strategy. It's so successful that we're signing up around 38% of all quotes offered - that's better than one in every 3 quotes (almost 4 in 10).

I also just wanted to remind you that there are only a couple more weeks left until we close our Prize Draw for an iPad Mini. All you need to do to enter is ask us to quote for your car insurance before 31st May.

Please give us a try if your insurance is due soon - others are saving £££s and the chance to WIN an iPad Mini. But that's not all we have to offer...

If there were 4 comments that best sum up the benefits of our service, it's these, received in recent weeks:

"Mine's all sorted signed and sealed with CK. Very quick and easy and most importantly, an efficient/professional service. Compared to the original renewal from Churchill, CK were over £300 cheaper.  Compared to the cheapest quote from the usual sites, CK were around £50-£100 cheaper." Akash - VWAudi Forum

"Many thanks for all your help - it makes the whole process much less of a chore dealing with a friendly, helpful & professional human being rather than a faceless website! Also I appreciate the fact that Chris Knott advertise a 'proper' number so that it doesn't cost a fortune calling from a mobile. I will definitely be recommending Chris Knott to anyone who asks." D Birtles, Recommended by a friend

"Chris Knott have just given me an absolute steal of a price. I can't tell you or you'd not take this post seriously! I only left them as they had a funny uncompetitive year but they are back and I am very happy to be with them instead of some random internet only cowboys." ofnpanad, AlfaOwner.com

"Well, I've just taken out my S-Max insurance with Chris Knott, and I have to say that Rebecca did a fabulous job of finding me a great quote, recognised my lack of computer skills and talked me through everything. How nice it is to talk with someone who is professional and patient. For the first time, speaking with insurance companies today, I actually felt that I was being valued as a customer. Any problems or concerns and I only have to call back, and chances are I can speak to the same person again. Well done Chris Knott Insurance for restoring my faith in customer service." Fezzer, SMax Owners Club

You should call Chris Knott Insurance for a car quote and to benefit from a better level of service. Find out how much you could save and, if calling before 31st May, get free entry into our iPad Mini draw. Hurry - not long left for the draw!!

We'll be running another great competition via our Facebook page soon - so please LIKE the Chris Knott Facebook page. In addition, there'll be a draw for a year's FREE UK Breakdown Cover once we reach 500 LIKES. Don't miss out!
ChrisKnottIns

Please remember to include Chris Knott in the mix when searching for a car insurance quote.

For good drivers, we can often beat your best alternative quote when we know what it is - dis-regarding what the system says we should be quoting. That's because our insurer partners trust us and allow us to quote what we need to to get them good quality business.

This year so far we're signing up even more forum members than last year so we must be doing something right!

Call Chris Knotts and we'll find you the best deal based on your individual needs.

"Ian insured with Chris Knott a couple of weeks ago and reported the best deal he's ever had, thanks guys" said Alfanutz admin, Zender156.

High for the industry, 78% of Chris Knott's clients are renewing this year too, which means we are pretty consistent in our pricing - not looking to change the rate if the risk is the same as last year.

It's true there have been a few comments regarding the length of time it takes for us to answer calls. But we're pleased to say that we've listened to feedback and have now made it easier for you to get through to the quoting team. They were previously handling other types of enquiry but we're now fielding those enquiries to a separate, dedicated team. You should notice a great improvement.

Pick up the phone today if you're due in the next few weeks and see how much Chris Knott can save you.
ChrisKnottIns

UPDATE: Car Insurance Wish List

Hi,

In the Chris Knott office recently we were considering whether there were things the industry could do better. We were also contemplating what we as a business could do better.

Being that we're coming to the end of the year and are starting our planning for our new financial year which begins 1st Feb it's a good time to ask this question of you.

It's incredibly important for us to get members' views in all this as we seek to provide the things you want and need. Interactivity is the benefit of being involved with a forum.

Of course, a competitive price is always going to feature highly amongst the responses - we know that and we've responded as the market has softened in recent months. But we're also keen to find out if there are things besides the price that matter to you from a cover or service point of view that would be useful.

We'll look at all your suggestions - some of them we'll be able to arrange straight away, others will take longer to organise, maybe involving insurers, and some will not be possible at all but we'll do all we can to respond to the sensible suggestions.

To make sure we're not just feeding our competitors ideas, please PM me on here or drop us a message on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns) or Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/Chris_Knott_Ins).

We look forward to hearing from you but please maintain the helpful, collaborative spirit in which this is intended.

In the meantime, please continue to call us for quotes. We've had a brilliant July and it's all down to car club/forum members like you picking up the phone.

Online v Phone
We know many of you like to get your quotes online but we're able to beat the price comparison sites if we can talk to you - we get a better feel for you over the phone and we can ask different questions to manually decide whether you're a good risk to take on and at what price. This benefits you far more than a simple "computer says yes, computer says no" scenario.

Pick up the phone and ask us to quote (Tel: 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477) - you'll be glad you did when we beat your best quote (which we currently do for almost 50% of all callers).

Multi-car households
If you have multi-car policies with the likes of Admiral, we can compete with these too. Those companies typically only have their own products to sell. We have access to a whole range of insurers and can pick the most appropriate one for each individual vehicle but still give you the benefit of a single renewal date and a single point of contact - call Chris Knott Insurance for your quote today.

Past experience
It may be that you've asked us to quote in the past and we weren't able to help. If that's the case it's definitely worth calling us again when your renewal falls due. With postcode relaxations and changes to driver age requirements in the last 12 months there's a good chance that we've dealt with whatever was preventing us from winning your business last time. And if price was the issue, please don't miss out on this one thing - we currently have insurers queuing up at our door for good, clean, car club/forum member drivers and they'll support us in doing whatever it takes to win the right cases.

You all know what insurance is like. Today's low rates may start to rise again tomorrow. Let's both make hay while the sun shines!

Give us a call on 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 and mention this forum to see how much we can save you.

See you in a couple of weeks.

best regards,
Nick

"Just want to say a huge thanks for the service you guys have provided so far. The exhaust mod has been added free of charge. Really pleased with how you operate." raymondbowon, FocusSTOC.com

"Very impressed with the service and for beating my renewal quote by a healthy margin. Also insured my Favorit through yourselves as the policy was £200 cheaper than anywhere else! I'm very impressed and hopefully I will keep using you guys in future. Thanks." pierst1, Briskoda.net

UPDATE: Good news if your renewal is due soon

I'm back from hols and glad to be available to answer queries again.

July turned out to be a really good month so thanks for supporting Chris Knotts if you called for a quote.

Remember that if you've been quoted more than £200 you should call us as there's a good chance we can beat it.

**CHRIS KNOTT MONTHLY PRIZE DRAW to see the year out**
Each month until the end of the year we'll be offering a different prize in our monthly draw. So, ask us for a car quote during September and you could WIN a Karcher Pressure Washer - perfect for doing a good job of cleaning your car (or driveway/patio/decking, etc).

Simply call us on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 for your free quote and we'll automatically enter you for the draw.

We hope this will encourage more of you to at least give us a try when your renewal falls due. Our rates are currently the best that they've been for a long time and we know they have to speak for themselves but this is an extra incentive for you to pick up the phone.

We look forward to talking to you.

best,
Nick

***UPDATE: 2015 with CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE***

Happy New Year to you all.

Thanks so much for your custom in 2014, especially in response to the Chris Knott Prize Draws at the tale end of the year. I'm pleased to announce that December's winner was Mrs D Woodfin from Bolton. She bagged herself a £100 Amazon Voucher and all she did was ask us for a quote.

During the early part of this year we're aiming to start negotiations with the companies on our insurer panel to alter the scheme access criteria, allowing us to quote competitively for even more car club/forum members. We'll keep you posted as things develop.

As things stand many car club/forum members are saving money every day but we'd obviously like more members to be able to benefit from calling Chris Knott Insurance. In just the last week we've signed up another 12 forums - forums who've heard good things about Chris Knott and want their members to be able to access great car insurance deals too.

If you'd like us to quote when your modified or standard car is due for renewal please call the Chris Knott Club Line on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 and mention this forum to receive the full benefit.

Remember, if we couldn't beat your quote before the reason may now have passed, especially if you were just a bit too young for the scheme when you called us. Please include us again in the mix this year.

best,
Nick

UPDATE: **Winners all round...**

£500 WINNER
Congratulations to Mr B Windeatt, a member of car club forum MG-Rover.org, who won our £500 competition last month. All he had to do was call for a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote to be entered into the draw. Now his cheque is on it's way.

WINNING QUOTES FOR MEMBERS
As for our special club car insurance scheme, this morning I asked our Motor Supervisor where we stood against this month's target. She reported that we're almost at 50% already after just the first week of the month's trading.

Thanks to everyone who is asking us to quote for their car insurance at the moment. Feedback has been coming in thick and fast. I normally post a few examples from recent days but this time there are so many that I'm having to choose a selection rather than all of them. It has really kicked off and I'm glad we're helping so many car club members to save money as well as providing good broker service.

Please call us if your car insurance is due soon and mention this forum to access the special car club member scheme and maybe we'll be your best option this year too.

Feedback about Chris Knott Car Insurance from happy car club/forum members whose business we've won:

"I have just taken a policy a out with these guys and they beat my cheapest quote by 10% and may I say the service was top class. I personally was looked after by Kathy who was very helpful and polite. Can't recommend enough." YamYam, FiestaSTOC.com

"Looks like I'll be taking a policy through you guys. Far cheaper than what my renewal is through my current company!" Ant21, Astra Owners Network

"RS3 insurance time is just around the corner, so seeing as we insured the TT with them, thought I'd go to Chris Knott Insurance to see what they could do...... Emailed Nick yesterday, had a call today and went through everything, job done, they have literally halved what Admiral's renewal quote was. When the van is due in February I shall be calling them up for that too... It's nice to see an insurance specialist actually deliver a good service and save us money. Too many promise good rates on high performance cars but never seem to get close to 'normal' insurance companies quotes. They also gave me £20 off for already having a policy with them..... And being an Audi-Sport.net member....." Veneeringman, Audi-Sport.net

"They smashed my renewal and beat my cheapest quote. It saved me £232 (Jan). A good way towards taxing it for 12 months." PaulRS3, Audi-Sport.net

"Took an insurance policy out with you over the weekend. Really happy with the service and really chuffed with my quote. Cheapest out of everybody I tried. Thanks." AdamJonezy, Briskoda.net

"Just got my girlfriend's TT insured with you guys today - gave you a quote I'd got from Confused and you guys managed to beat it by over a £100 :thumbs: Girlfriend is a happy bunny " chirag1988, 350z-uk.com

"Could I just add Nick, that I had exceptional service by a lovely lady called Kathy, very polite and helped me with my questions regarding my quote this evening with a competitive price. Please pass on this feedback!" Dean, ClubPolo

Guess which clubs/forums feature in Chris Knott's Top 20...

Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working for the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK.

We've compiled our Top 20 clubs/forums for the first half of 2015. The results are based on a combination of the number of quotes requested by the club, the number of new policies sold and then the % of quotes converted.

If your club features it means you're more likely to save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote because you're very active with us.

If your club doesn't feature it's probably because the enquiry levels themselves are low - get asking us to quote and you could feature next time around!!

As car club members generally look after their cars better than the average driver, the insurers on our panel allow us to be a bit more flexible in our pricing and respond to your best alternative quote rather than a rigid computer calculation to win the business.

This is currently working best for members of these forums:

THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20

1.  Alfa Romeo Owners Club
2.  Volvo Owners Club
3.  Saab Owners Club
4.  Briskoda
5.  CIVINFO
6.  Z4 Forum

These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

"Just renewed mine again this week and it was cheaper than anywhere else I went to. Declared my mods too and changed my address with no cost. Brilliant." JackW, Civinfo

"Just spoke to a lovely lady called Kathy, and they got my quote down from £298 with Post Office to £200 all in. Money Supermarket were offering me £194 online, with a supposed £0 excess....via Esure/Sheila's Wheels. That I find hard to believe, and having been burnt before on these enticing offers (once they have you, they then load everything on - windscreen, legal, business use, etc). Kathy got me a great deal with what I wanted, £100 excess and all the other bits included!" jodonut99, Dacia Forum

"So far so good! Not only did they beat my renewal but they beat the lowest quote on the comparison website by a whopping £70. Saved over £200 on my renewal quote. Content of insurance seems great also. Hopefully I won't need to use them but hope all is well if I do! Thanks CK!" Watsona6, Briskoda

"Just insured my 530i with Chris Knott - they were £70 cheaper than my renewal cost from Admiral and beat the cheapest quote I could find anywhere else by £20, can't argue with that Kathy was very friendly and helpful on the phone and called back straight away when I was cut off by a thunder storm so I didn't have to go through all the menus and questions again, which was nice." lufbramatt, BMW 5 Series forum

"Just renewed my policy yesterday with CKI. Heres to another easy amd cheap 12 months" Jamie, Fiesta OC

"Big thanks to Rebecca at Chris Knott - having moved to an even more dodgy postcode my previous brokers wouldn't entertain renewing. Chris Knott matched me up to my previous insurers with the same cover as before. Excellent friendly service, and reminded me to get the rest of my documents sent in when I'd obviously forgotten!" Rebel Rebel, Volvo Performance Club UK

"Got my renewal from CKI at £800 which is cheaper than last year by £60. Shopped around online and got a quote for £640 so I thought I would have to leave CKI this year. A phone call to Milton and a few emails later he got back to me and said my insurance company will match the quote like for like for £640 aswell. All in all Milton just saved me £160. Calls centre are friendly and more than happy to help you and English based which is a big bonus. Here's to another year with @ChrisKnottIns " davidm5575, Fiesta OC
